The new Coffee Table Book being published soon by the Seychelles Tourism Board exclusively with pictures taken Imran Ahmad, the known and very respected Nikon professional photographer, is set make its mark. Pictures from La Digue islands has now been received for the pages dedicated to that island. The last set of pictures that are still to come are those of the Aldabra Atoll.
Imran Ahmad has already published with his own coffee table book entitled “Fifty Fathoms” and has agreed to make available to the Seychelles Tourism Board his pictures taken in the waters of the Seychelles for a book that will be entitled “Seychelles Unexpected Treasures”. Imran Ahmed accompanied by local diver Elizabeth Fideria are currently shooting in the Aldabra Atoll.
The announcement that this new Seychelles Coffee Table Book was being finalised was made by Alain St.Ange, the Seychelles Minister responsible for Tourism and Culture,when he was addressing the opening ceremony of 2013 SUBIOS, the Seychelles Festival of the Sea last October.
Minister St.Ange said: “Today at the opening of the 2013 SUBIOS, the Seychelles Festival of the Sea, we are pleased to announce that the Seychelles Tourism Board is planning to celebrate our ocean with a new book on Seychelles’ underwater world.
This coffee table book will be titled, ‘Seychelles Unexpected Treasures.’ All the pictures are by the renowned Nikon photographer, Imran Ahmad, who has come to know and love our waters and the many wonders beneath our waves. This work that he is actively engaged in as we speak, in collaboration with the Seychelles Tourism Board, will include extraordinary images of our underwater world and will greatly raise our profile as a diving destination. We would like to take this opportunity to say a big thank you to Imran for making available his personal pictures that have all been taken in Seychelles.”
The Seychelles Tourism Board has already published several coffee table books which are used as part of the marketing of the islands. Minister St.Ange said that he remains convinced that with the spectacular pictures being offered to the Seychelles Tourism Board by Imran Ahmad will help to consolidate diving as an important niche market for Seychelles.
